    The article doesn't indicate where East Greenwich might have been. Just wondering what part of the state?

    just that the Creighton Woman was apparently Told,
    by the person she was corresponding with, was from.

    perhaps the person she was corresponding with was fresh off the boat from London,
    when she asked

    though a lot of towns did come and go thorough the gold rush.

    sometimes the terminology "town", in those days, was NOT what we think of today as "towns". A "town" (or village, etc...) could often times mean nothing more than a collection of a few neighbor's homes, within a few mile radius. Or nothing but a cross-roads where 2 or 3 structures existed (ie.: someone "threw out their shingle" so that the passing stage could stop and throw off the mail).
